[Unpaid] Need help recreating 3d text.
Recently I've started to make a webpage, and I'm recreating a logo. But the logo is from a scan, so there's one part that I can't recreate. If anyone could tell me how, or offer to do it for me, that would be great.

PS. I don't need the green background if you do decide to do it for me, just the letters.

RE: [Unpaid] Need help recreating 3d text.
A quick shot at it... my original is actually twice as big (background on separate letters).

One question is how important is the grainy look (or if it's already the result of some image degradation, which at least partially likely). Not perfect but the long part was redoing the outline using paths. Once you have that there are plenty of scripts to generate logo effects.

Will post the XCF if needed.

Edit: much better looks with DD's Bevel script:

Thanks a lot man, that is perfect. Also, thanks for the script. The grainy look was not needed, and was a result of bad scanning, but thank you for the help!

Not perfect because the 3D in the middle of the S is a bit weird. I'll have to find a way to make it smoother.

The longest part was searching for a font (which I didn't find, hence the solutions with path, which turned out to be better anyway).

If you want the XCF (Path, separate layers, etc...), PM me.
